Survivor Celebrity Mahem Explained: Celebrity Economics

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The Economist had an article last week exploring the entertainment industries' recent shift towards talentless celebrities (think Survivor winners). The case Economist brings to the table is that it's cheaper to manufacturer a celebrity out of someone with no talent because celebrities who actually have talent are demanding a larger share of the pie these days. There is also an interesting thread in the article about how TV culture has created the need for celebrity tabloids.
